Supposedly, a praying mantis that comes to visit you means that it's good luck. :eek:

I sure hope so, because after this huge thing sat in my window sill for 3 days, he finally made his way out - into my office. He was like 4" +.

I took a bunch of pics of his antics & I seriously think I pissed him right the f off because after a bit of his "exploring" of the my office, he then made his way onto my monitor, then my desk...like RIGHT next to my arm...and stared at me. I let him sit there for a bit, then he got a tad closer and moved his head some to...stare. :omy:

Ever sit on the computer with a praying mantis sitting next to you, staring intently? Really creepy. Then after I was getting used to it, he charged at my arm, then back to the desk. Then charged at my head and sat there, then crawled to my face with his stabby legs out, like he was gonna strike. I got creeped the f out and threw him outside. TOO CLOSE, BUDDY.

Anyway. Pix:

When he first flew over...making his way up my desk leg.

Changed his mind & went for higher ground.

This is where he sat, intently staring & moving closer. Last pic I got before he started charging at me & putting out his stabby legs on my face.

LOL. They are sooo funny. Normally, thy never creep me out, but I SWEAR, this thing stalked me! Yours is brown.

I guess they come in other awesome colors, like pinks and shizz. But, not here in the US.
